Here we go again

Well im going back to an XJ, bought a 96. Most importantly it has A/C. Also has power windows and locks and the body is pretty darn solid, a couple of rough spots to fix, but al in all solid. 277K on the ticker, bonus, everything works. Needed a little TLC. Had a miss when i bought it. Did a quick tuneup, plugs, wires, cap, rotor and now runs surprisingly well. Build will probably begin after Rocktoberfest. I'm not doing a build thread because it wont be any special considering i will just be swapping all i can from the comanche and doing an internal cage, again nothing special.

Re: Here we go again

Agree, looks good, all right. A solid body in that vintage in these parts is a very lucky find. Clearly with as fast as you found/scored it, you were meant to have that one.

Shame to see the Comanche go, but understand the reasoning. Going to run a flag on the back of this one like you used to do in the old days on the '95?

Nothing happened to the comanche, this was the first year my daughter went and she loved it, so now I need to fit the family in a Jeep hence Cherokee. Oh and I NEED AIR CONDITIONING. I'm to old to wheel in the hot box any more.
